Manny Heads to B.C.
Former Bulldog linebacker Emanuel(Manny) Sanchez bypassed undrafted free agent contracts from NFL teams for a guaranteed two year deal with the CFL's B.C. Lions.
Sanchez was a former walk on and became a great supporting linebacker in his three years. Unfortunately, many Bulldog fans will remember him for his hapless performance against USC last year and the three games that followed against Nevada, Louisiana Tech and Tulsa. In his defense, he was never a run stopper. Sanchez was at his best in pass defense. The truth is not too many defenders are able to stop Reggie Bush anyways.
